Photo ID 85 – 27 – Paul Godley – Godley Cycles, CXNE Round 13 – Whitley Bay_, originally uploaded by mattmuir.co.uk.
Photos from Round 13 of the Cyclocross North East race series, held just outside Whitley bay.
Weather conditions on the day were decidedly damp, with no let up throughout the event, turning what would be a fast course into a quagmire with some of the riders choosing to run along flat sections of the course due to the amount of mud and ruts that were forming.
The eventual winner of the event was Steven Ward (MTS cyclesport) but in my opinion all competitors deserved a medal for even turning up on a day like this!
